We arrived in the rain and sat in the changing rooms to talk tactics. In the first half we had some brilliant saves from Maya but in the first few minutes of having Sophie on the pitch she had scored an excellent goal set up by a pass from Maddy to Linda with a big hit into the D where Sophie placed it into the goal. Maddy and Georgia had some great links down the wing ending it with a brilliant cross across the goal but unfortunately missed by both Dette and Linda. We ended the first half 1-0 to us.
The second half Alice P did some good linking between the backs and the forwards. Jan and Becky had some strong defending. Dette made a lot of strong runs up the wing towards Bicester’s D. Soon through the half we were given a short corner and, after a great injection from Dette, Sophie was able to receive the ball slip to Alice P who passed it back for Sophie to place it in the goal. Making the score 2-0 to us. We started to weaken in the last 20 minutes but were strong enough to hold off Bicester from scoring ending the match 2-0.
